MAURA Higgins has hinted she is reuniting with Strictly ex Giovanni Pernice after TWO champagne glasses were spotted in her hotel room.

The Love Island star wiped all the loved-up snaps of herself and former beau Giovanni, 31, from her Instagram grid earlier this week.


The Sun later revealed how the Strictly Come Dancing star shockingly DUMPED Maura, 30, as he "didn't want to settle down".

But the reality TV star hinted a reunion may be on the cards as she showed off two champagne glasses on the table of her London hotel room.

Maura filmed the glamorous hotel in central London, which had the two flutes laid out next to a bottle of champagne and a plate of biscuits.

The star didn't give away who she would be sharing the treats with – but it may have given away that she was not in the hotel room alone.

"Back in my favourite hotel," she wrote to fans as she showed off the room, which had views of the London Eye from the window.

It comes after it was revealed how Maura was left blindsided by the split and is “utterly heartbroken” as she takes time to "move on".

A source said: “Maura didn’t see this coming and is finding it very difficult to come to terms with. She genuinely thought Gio was the one.”

The pair are believed to have split two weeks ago after heart-to-heart talks that saw the dancer reveal he wasn't ready to settle down.

It is believed Giovanni admitted he’d become concerned the pair’s “crazy suitcase lives” meant they weren’t able to see enough of each other. 

“Gio is working 24/7 on Strictly and Maura is flying here, there and everywhere with modelling," the source explained.

The added: "Gio is also set to go on tour again next year when Strictly ends so their lifestyles just don’t fit with settling down at the moment.

"That’s why Gio decided to end things. They have crazy suitcase lives which makes it hard to be in a relationship.

"He adores Maura and had hoped they could remain friends – but that doesn’t look likely.”

The Sun first revealed that Giovanni and Maura were dating over the summer, sharing snaps of the pair out with pals in Blackpool in June.

But even then witnesses said they overheard the pair “bickering” while out- with witnesses describing their relationship as fiery.  

"It’s not easy going out with someone who’s on Strictly Come Dancing, with all the history there," the source revealed.

"Plus, Maura had to deal with the fact one Katie McGlynn, who Gio has been linked to, was on the show.

"But she was hugely supportive of Gio and is utterly heartbroken things have come to an end. But Maura is a strong girl and will brush herself down and bounce back.”

Giovanni and Maura teased their romance for weeks before confirming they were an item in July.

It came just two months after Maura's split from her ex Christopher Taylor.
